This book is a lively account of Grace Turner Arno’s adventures. Grace inherited pioneer spirit from her grandparents, who trekked across the continent with wagon trains on the Oregon and California Trails. A few years later, her father as a child and his parents sailed the Pacific on a windjammer with their prized horses in order to homestead in British Columbia. Grace’s adventures begin as a little girl in 1915 when her family takes an epic journey by auto and afoot from their remote ranch to visit the World’s Fair in San Francisco. Then as a young housewife in 1940, she moves her new family to a cabin on an island in Puget Sound. She chronicles happenings there during World War II, when islanders thought they were a target for Japanese attack. Once the War and gas rationing are over, Grace plans ambitious auto camping tours of the West, and then of the whole country. She relishes these trips despite poor roads, unreliable and uncomfortable cars, clunky camping equipment, and kids who got car-sick. By the 1950s she and husband Sig are traveling through Europe, making arrangements on the fly in an era when international communication, credit cards, and other travel conveniences were rare.
